Israeli PM says he is ready to order an attack on Iran
Tue Nov 6, 2012
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he is ready to order a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
“I am, of course, ready to press the button if necessary,” Netanyahu said in the interview aired by Israel’s Channel Two television on Monday.
On Sunday, a new report revealed that a planned Israeli strike against Iran in 2010 was thwarted due to Tel Aviv’s qualms about its own military capabilities as well as top-echelon internal opposition against the measure.
On September 2, Netanyahu called on the international community to set a “clear red line” for Iran to halt its nuclear energy program.
